May/ June 2018 • 26 NA-FC Education Foundation COMMUNITY RAISES $125,000 Spirit rivaled generosity among the 550 attendees at the annual "Edu- cation Celebration!" hosted by the New Albany-Floyd County Educa- tion Foundation at Huber Winery's Plantation Hall. Guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, a buffet dinner, entertainment, and live and silent auc- tions. Items designed and notes written by students adorned the tables, adding a personal touch to the fund-raising appeal. Assured Partners was the title sponsor, assisted by 28 supporting sponsors. The net profit of $125,000 will support the foundation's programs throughout the year: Grateful Hearts, Imagination Library, First-Year Teacher Gifts, Blessings in a Backpack, Junior Achievement, scholar- ships, art experiences, education tours, and classroom projects. The foundation has raised $600,000 in the last seven years, according to Ex- ecutive Director Tyler Bliss.
